Proud Babywearing Family

13 Jul

I knew before baby boy was born that we would be a babywearing friendly family. Some may say it’s granola, others it’s parenting in 2010, and some may say it will spoil him but we just love it! Well I do anyways and have yet to hear otherwise from my loving husband who has embraced fatherhood better than I could ever imagine!

I had experience with a few carriers and slings as a nanny and had an idea of what kinds I wanted and ones that we did not necessarily need. I went ahead and purchased a mei tei, sleepy wrap and pink lemonade ring sling. I then won a beautiful Sakura Bloom from A Peek Inside the Fishbowl.  I am a strong believer that there are different slings for different occasions (and of course depends what I am wearing) and each has their purpose. I am in love with all of them and use them daily. My sweet baby boy has spent many days sleeping in them, nursing, riding the bus and going for walks.

I love babywearing so much that I even made a wrap, thanks to the encouraging Refashionista who actually got me to get my sewing machine out and use it! For those who know me you are aware that my sewing machine and I have a love hate relationship, it’s usually that darn bobbin!

You know what I love the most about my new wrap? I can breastfeed hands free and nobody sees boobies 😉

      Yes that’s the one I made! It saves me when he would cluster feed all evening as I could be hands free!
